Looking to purchase a 2004 Carb from a Yamaha vstar 650 to put onto my 2001 Yamaha vstar 650. Does anyone know if they are compatible? I have done some research and notice a part number difference in the carb itself however the rebuilt kits say they are the same? Thank you

They will fit the bike, but it may not be a simple plug and play, despite the same jetting. There can be a number of reasons for altering part numbers, from a change in color to minute or bigger differences in design. The 2004 has obtained a fuel cut off solenoid not present in 2001, which probably also account for the change in the wiring harness I noticed for the newer version.

If you want to compare the two, you can use the parts list from these two links:
